    Quote Dunhill has nice products (try to find cufflinks in french brands.
    One cannot help but wonder why it is called a French Cuff...
    You are nothing but a Sactorial Peacock

    What's a sactorial peacock? With a c.

    Very hard to explain, spend a few years in London, you will work it out.. What does a.c. mean. Basicaliy, someone who does not give a dam what the end result looks like, they simply put great emphasis onto each peice in their outfit, and quality over style is always the case. They tend to wear colours like purple a lot. Silk shirts are a also common amongst the peacocks.
    Oh, I understand what a sartorial peacock is. But it seems the addition of a c tends to deter understanding.
    I am totaly lost, my head is spinning  [​IMG][/quote] What I meant was that I know what a sartorial peacock is. But why is there a c in sartorial?

    Ah, thank you then. [​IMG] H.Huntsman is one of my favorite tailoring houses. Their military silhouette is quite appealing. Highly structured.

    I am NOT in low class in matter of knowledge, culture, studies ...nor money.

    Stop living only for job and money.

    Imagine :

    1) an uneducated guy who becomes rich by miracle, what would he buy to looks well dressed?
    = Rolex/Boss/Kenzo

    2) an educated man with no job/money but who would like to buy Patek/Canali/Green when he could

    Who is lower class for you?

    I don't think a "low class" person would buy Kenzo. Most people don't know that label. Like Romeo Gigli, et al. Quite known by fashionistas, and clothing mavens but outisde the circles not really.

    Interesting you mention this name. We were in Milan buying Prandina for the Spring 05 and Prandina is now manufacturing for Romeo Gigli so we looked at it and were gonna buy some until they told us that the line is Men's not womens.

    Very Very wild stuff.

    Is this a popular men's line?

    In France, KENZO is very famous, for exemple brooks Brothers is completely unknown. It is like BOSS, YSL = brands everybody knows and reconize as TOP level (by mistake)

    I have 2 ties of Romeo, bought in the one of the bigest mall of PAris (Printemps) but nevertheless it is true this brand is not famous in France.
